It is the obligation of the United States Forest Service (FS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to restore water quality limited water bodies under their management to conditions that meet or exceed standards. Water Quality Restoration Plans provide a plan that agencies will use for applying the necessary strategies and actions which will be used to restore water quality impaired waters (ICBEMP, 1998). The purpose of this Water Quality Restoration Plan (WQRP) is to provide information on management measures the FS and BLM are taking to reduce non-point sources of pollution for surface waters on federal lands within the Upper Klamath Basin. Water Quality Restoration Plans are typically completed as a component of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) allocations, which are explained in the next section.
